Krisna House: An antique wooden house, providing creative flexible living. It has a bedroom, an outdoor Balinese style bathroom, a cool shaded individual kitchen and lounge area and shared 13m pool. Away from, but quick access to busy Ubud.

The space

Hati Suci (Clean or Pure Heart) is the name of our property. There are four houses on the property, Krisna House is one of them. All have access to the gardens and swimming pool. All have their own unique sense of privacy.

Hati Suci is located 13 km, 20 mins north of busy Ubud. Amid luscious rice fields, on the edge of virgin jungle, it reflects conscious sustainability and permaculture principles. Flexible accommodation suiting family, friends, retreats.


IMPORTANT: This introductory offer reflects that the current temporary access is via a rice field path. Although beautiful and used daily by the local community, we consider that (at present) it would be unsuitable for elderly or infirm visitors.

The antique wooden structure, has personality and rustic luxury running throughout. The owners personal taste and belongings add to the warmth and homeliness of Krisna House.

This wooden house has a raised terrace and open wooden steps, without hand rails, therefore, with their safety in mind, we recommend supervision for the elderly, infirm or under 12’s.

Krisna House has one double bedroom with a double or two single beds (as required), a wooden terrace with gorgeous views of the property and working rice fields. It has a spacious outdoor Balinese style bathroom, and a cleverly designed well equipped kitchen built under the main house, also incorporating a cool and shaded dining and lounge area. This delightful house is full of rustic luxury.

The bedroom has it’s own safe, big enough to hold a 17 inch laptop.

A 13m swimming pool is central to the property, surrounded by the maturing garden. A large comfortable Bale (covered seating area) is next to the pool, with other comfortable seating areas in abundance. Nearby, a covered traditional grass roofed building holds two hammocks and a swing chair for guests use.

The 13m pool is 1.4m deep and will shortly be converted into a salt water pool. The pool may be shared by guests renting the other houses, however, Krisna House has it’s own privacy.

Hati Suci has been built with a conscious effort towards sustainability and permaculture. We have a passive solar water heating system, non chemical waste water treatment, rain catchment and gardens that are chemical free.

The Garden consists of vegetable gardens, herb areas, newly planted fruit trees and tropical planting. Any produce is available for your personal use. It is an ever evolving work in progress. There is also a fish pond, integral to the waste water system. Our gardeners take pride in this project based on permaculture principles. Flowers, butterflies and birds are plentiful.

Wi-Fi Internet is included (please bring your own laptop or tablet).

PLEASE NOTE: This property is on the edge of living, working rice fields and jungle and there are creatures around. The property is thoroughly cleaned daily (including the beds stripped and swept), but the odd ant, frog, lizard or other local creature may encroach on occasion.
We do not have AC, and choose to take advantage of the natural breezes.

PETS: John and Mike are the two cats at Hati Suci. They are effective and necessary in keeping some wildlife out of the houses. Affectionate yet independent they are part of the rental. Our staff will take care of their needs. We ask that you treat them with respect.

We have easy access by motorbike or car (taxi services can be arranged) to Ubud, the cultural centre of Bali. The 20 minute drive is breathtaking, winding through the jungle, rice fields, river valleys and several traditional villages.

Ubud abounds with restaurants, shops, spas, yoga, cooking, batik and art classes along with many healing modalities. It has several art galleries and a museum. Evenings offer Balinese dance performances, Fire ceremonies and Gamelan.
We are a one and a half hour drive from the airport, one hour from the nearest beaches and half an hour from Kintamani, which is on the edge of the volcano, Mount Batur.

Hati Suci and the surrounding rice fields themselves are in a unique and tranquil setting. Higher than Ubud towards the foothills of the volcano, it is tropical but not as hot as the beach areas. There are fewer mosquitoes but wildlife is abundant.

Hati Suci has a manager, two housekeepers and gardener. Laundry can be done for an additional fee. Also some local restaurants deliver to the house, menus are provided.

Guest access

Access to the property is via a 4 minute walk along a beautiful rice field path, most of which is concrete, however, the last 5 metres is unmade and unlit at present, so may be unsuitable for elderly or infirm visitors.

The swimming pool is a shared area between guests as is the pool Bale (covered seating area), and garden shelter

Interaction with guests

There is daily cleaning, pool maintenance and gardening included. Our manager will be at hand and we provide an Indonesian mobile with useful numbers and contacts. Daily offerings are made at the houses and temples on the land by our Balinese help. Should you want complete privacy at any time, then we will fully respect that, just please let us know, however, offerings have to be accommodated at some time most days.

Other things to note

1. The rental includes the manager, 3 housekeepers and 2 gardeners.

2. If possible bring a photocopy of your passport , it is required by law that all visitors be registered, and this will eliminate the need for your actual passport to be taken to the police station.

3. Mobile phones are available for your use.

4. There is unlimited internet access included with the house. Please be patient, Bali is not a first world country and occasionally internet lapses for short periods.

5. This is a safe area, however we are not responsible for any valuables left in the house. There is a strong secure safe in each bedroom, please keep your travel documents, money, laptops and any other valuables in there.

6. We can provide a laundry service,
An information sheet with itemised prices is in the houses.

7. We are in the middle of the working rice fields and, occasionally, usually for brief amounts of time, there can be issues with the electricity or internet. Please be patient, it is normally back on fairly quickly.

8. Our water supply is stored rain water with emergency top up through piped spring water. Our manager and gardener will monitor supplies.

9. Toilet and bathroom waste is managed through an organic waste water system using worms. Please never use bleach or strong chemicals, although the system copes with normal shampoos and soaps. Please use the bins provided for toilet paper and sanitary towels. Thank you.

10. Also, the area is teeming with birds and wildlife, occasionally these creatures might "trespass" ... they have no idea of what man-made boundaries mean. The staff clean thoroughly daily, so be assured we move them on and there are no actual "residents".

11. We have excellent reasonably priced massage therapists, manicurists etc. who can be scheduled at the property.
Massage beds are available at the property.

12 . We've already said it but John and Mike are the two resident cats that live here, with whoever is hosting. They are friendly and efficient at keeping unwanted small animals out of the house and our staff will feed them. We are sorry but their residency is non negotiable :-) Thank you.

13. We respectfully ask guests to stop playing music and keep the noise down after 9pm. We have close neighbours and hope that you can also respect their tranquility. Thank you

We had a great stay at Ilhus place! And we would definitely recommend this accommodation to any guests who would like to see Ubud but also the true bali, in a traditional way. You will stay in the middle of the forest and rice fields (don't be afraid of animals/insects). As stated they try their very best to keep everything clean but since the cabins are not entirely closed insects and such can enter (no mosquitoes tho, and if you want they will clean your room every day). In one word it is a great, beautiful and alternative stay with nice food and great service/staff. It is half an hour drive to Ubud you can take a taxi, we had an amazing driver who told us a lot about Indonesia, Bali, Hinduism and his own life. Thanks Gusti! However to safe some money you could hire a motorcycle of borrow a bike (free)

This was my second time staying here. After the first time 18 months ago, I was so in awe I could not stop thinking about coming back. The property is so special, I cannot recommend it highly enough. The best spot to explore the Ubud and Tegallang areas without being swamped by tourist buses and held up in traffic. Staff were very friendly and helpful, can organise transport, massage, meals etc. Stay here!

Every morning you wake up to catch the sunrise is both a blessing and a treat. This villa is situated in such a beautiful and secluded area, away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud's center. Being in the middle of the rice paddies gives you such an authentic and unique Balinese experience. The staff are all extremely accommodating and Ita was so welcoming. Though I stayed here for 12 nights, it wasn't nearly enough. Look no further, your accommodation for Ubud is here.

What an amazing little sanctuary. I had the best week's stay. Very relaxing and peaceful. The rice fields are incredible. The town is a short ride away. The staff is so friendly and accommodated everything I needed. Would definitely recommend coming here and I will be back.

We loved our stay at hati suci because of the beautiful location in the middle of the rice fields, the peacefulness, the friendly staff, the swimming pool, the animals (our daughter of 1,5 years old kept talking about all the "wawa's" she saw) and insects, the rides on the scooter through the area, the mobile phone with a local simcard with which you could easily arrange things with Ilhu (or Giles). For us this felt like paradise!
